Near Morgantown in Monongalia County, West Virginia — The American South (Appalachia)
William Raber built this house in 1810 near Maidsville in Cass District, Monongalia County. After receiving the land from his father Christopher Raber in 1809, William willed the house and farm to his youngest son Samuel in 1849. Samuel Raber and his wife Keziah deeded the property to their son Thornton Raber in 1889, reserving a life estate for themselves. Thornton Raber and his wife Clara Bell later sold the property to William Henry Deets. Deets donated the cabin to the 4-H Camp in 1934. Cass Cabin became and remains today the cabin of the older girls at 4-H Camp.
